InfoPath to MOSS list

  Asked By: Cierra    Date: Mar 31    Category: MOSS    Views: 1285

I am trying to submit data from an InfoPath 2007 form to a SharePoint 2007 list.
I can get the actual document to upload to a document library, but I want the
actual data from the form fields to the list columns in SP.

You InfoPath 2007 form probably needs to be connected to the SharePoint
2007 list  to capture the data  being entered.

Open up the form with InfoPath 2007 in design mode and Select
View/Design Tasks.

There should be a Data Source selection there. Select this and then
select Manage Data Connections below.

Choose Add or change and you should see a similar dialog box like this:

Search for connection on a Microsoft Office SharePoint Server is what
you want to use.

This should guide you to a list for connection to the InfoPath form.

The easiest way to do this would be to publish the InfoPath form as a
template to the document library where you want the data  to be. During the
publishing process you can "Promote" fields on the form to be columns in the
library. If the field name matches an existing column name the data will be
placed in that column when the form is filled out and submitted. If there
is no matching column name, then a new column will be added to the document

We do a LOT of this quite successfully (MOSS).
1) the Infopath form has promoted fields to the DocLib where it is housed.
2) SPD workflows monitor create & changes to the DocLib.
2a) the create WF copies IDs between the DocLib item and creates new row in
ancillary SP List
2b) thereafter, change WF copies the DocLib meta-data into the ancillary List

have you save the form template to a forms library?

Answer #6    Answered By: Kristan Benjamin     Answered On: Mar 31

Yes I have. And I can get the form to save to a doc lib, just can't get the
fields to save to the columns.

Have you promoted the fields in the form template so they will be visible to
the list?

An alternative might be to base the form template on a content type, but if
it's already built you might not want to go to all that trouble.

I thought I had promoted the fields from form to list. I guess I'll have to go
through the tutorial posted earlier and try it again.

I am working with a very simple form with just a few fields so I can learn
the method. Not at all hard to redo the whole thing!
